Manufactured by Porsche AG in April 1970 to 914/6 specification and finished in Light Ivory, this car was delivered new to the French Porsche Importer in Paris, Sonauto.
In the mid 1980’s underwent a total restoration and professional conversion of the car to full GT specification. The work included GT chassis re-enforcement, wheel arch extensions, fitment of front oil cooler and great time and effort was made to source and fit wherever possible, original GT parts. This included fitment of rare 1970’s lightweight balsa NOS factory GT bonnet and boot panels.
Post restoration the car was sold to Wolfram Reutter of Frankfurt. Reutter has previously been the owner of the Chasseuil/Ballot-Lena Le Mans 914/6 GT. He then loaned the car to be put onto display for several years at the famous Rosso Bianco Museum in Sinsheim. The car then came to England and in the late 1990’s was used to compete in the Tour Auto, but DNF due to gearbox failure.
In 2008, the engine was rebuilt by 914/6 GT experts – Knüpfing Motorsport to twin-plug specification, since when it has had very little use. The car retains its FIA Historic Vehicle Identity Forms, which now require updating to the current HTP Papers .
An excellent 914/6, which has been properly uprated to GT specification. Eligible for many High Profile Race Series and of course the Tour Auto and all manner of similar events.
